Believe it or not Fandible crew, you do have French listeners. And yes, the French accent is defintly not your forte, don’t do it again. Ever. :p
Also I’m very disapointed that Fandible Live Paris won’t be happening anytime soon. So instead maybe you could try a French role playing game one of theses days. 😉
Anyway great podcast, keep being awesome. Vous Ãªtes formidables. 🙂
Frenchmen who speak good English are hard to imitate! I have to pick a specific teacher to copy when I try.
INCIDENTALLY @Decarcassor you don’t happen to know of any French language AP podcasts, do you? I long for some!
I will be honest… I -love- France. I took French in highschool/college, and got decent at the language. Sadly, since it’s been years, my vocabulary is practically gone.
Went to France twice in my life. It’s very beautiful. Has a lot of history. Like the people! The food.. is okay. I’m not a huge lover of French food, though I’m pro their bread.
Anyways, the point of the matter is I totally wish we could have Fandible Live Paris.
If you’re looking for French games, there’s always In Nomine Magna Satanis… (or good ol’ In Nomine, I don’t mind. :D)
In Nomine Satanis / Magna Veritas, or INS/MV for shorts might be a bit too much French. Especially since the original game was never translated to english and is full of references and jokes that make no sense if you are not French.
As far as I know In Nomine, is adapted from INS/MV but take itself much more seriously and does not really feel like the original game at all.
There is however another iconic French RPG (first published in 1985!) that got a full english translation and not an adaptation: “RÃªve de Dragon”. It litteraly mean Dragon’s Dream, but got translated as “RÃªve: the Dream Ouroboros” maybe because Dragon’s Dream sounded too generic in english ?
Anyway its a wonderfull game and you should totally check it out. The rules might look a bit intimidating at first but they are actually very simple and logical in the way they work. Magic is handled in a very unique way both in the rules and in the world.
I’m going to stop now because I could ramble about RÃªve forever. This game is one of my best role playing experiences.
Heck, if they have an e-book, I’ll give it a gander. We need more fantasy on this site!
Here you go:
Enjoy your reading. 🙂
“It does…but I can be pretty” made me crack up in my, very quiet, office.
More fantasy? Isn’t Numenara fantasy, when it really comes to it… 😉
I’m teasing, but you know what I could really go more of? BULLDOGS! There’s a space in my heart that only Murderbot can fill…
It was Prague; Architecturally beautiful, but also not lacking in hookers and drugs. It was like Paris meets Amsterdam.
I’m in Dublin now, Ireland’s capital; the why of which is a long a horrible story.
Now that I was reminded, I wanted to take a moment to say something that will likely go unnoticed. As I’ve said before, when I moved to Prague, I listened to you guys a lot. It was later I realized the why. It was a difficult period in my life that only got more difficult as time went on, but having a handful of familiar voices and amazing stories I could go back to and de-stress with whenever I needed are one of the main reasons I got through it at all.
Things got bad, and long story short, I left the career path, country and significant other behind, but all through out what was without a doubt the single most difficult period of my life I had a collection of voices I could always go back to put a smile on my face. Others might compare what you guys do to a TV show or a book, but to some degree no matter how engrossed we become who those media monoliths their creation will always be both an act of labor and love, but Fandible is something you guys clearly enjoy as much if not more than your audience. I think that makes Fandible something special, something worthy of admiration. It is something that exists solely because everyone involved wants it to, not for money or to make a point.
Billy mentioned when I mentioned where I was last that I might be lucky enough to find a group as great as you guys, and if it isn’t amazing hubris against the Fandigods, I say I’ve come pretty close. They’re now some of my closest, and by far funniest, friends. I’ve also been lucky enough to move to a career path I enjoy, a new home and a new happy relationship.
All through that Fandible was something that I could rely on and bring a little light into my life. I don’t say all this to sound crazy, or to stroke your egos, but to say a genuine heartfelt thank you from one person to several others. I always feel like you guys don’t have nearly as many listeners as you deserve so I’m aware that keeping quiet and not saying anything means you guys might not realize how great Fandible is, or hear it from someone else.
To close, I guess all I can say is thank you, not just from me, but on behalf of any fan you’ve brought a smile to on a bad day, because sometimes that means a lot and sometimes people have a lot of bad days.
Oh, and if I ever hit up New York, where I believe you’re held up, expect a round of drinks on me if you’ll have them. 🙂
Aw, Last Architect. You’re threatening to make me blub at work. Thank you so much for your heartfelt comments. I’m so glad that things are looking up for you personally, professionally, and game-ing-ly. Best of luck for continued happiness 🙂
I echo your thoughts, Architect (much more eloquently worded than mine). I was dealing with the lead up to the eventual death of a family member and being able to ‘sit in’ on those Fandible sessions was a bit of joy that helped to keep me going.
(It’s also nice to hear other people who hear song cues in so many things)
Lastarchitect and Warren,
Thanks for your kinds words. Its giving me all the feels. I’m glad our podcast has helped you both through trying times and we have plans for more funny gaming in the future. Also yes, there will be more spontaneous singing. Its seems to be a thing.
Sorry for making feels. What did you think of the performance of that team that plays the sportsball?
